  • HCFC Phase-out Management Plan for Iran

    This project is about the phase-out of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). HCFCs are ozone depleting compounds, the use of which is regulated by the Montreal Protocol on Ozone Depleting Substances.

  • Institutional Strengthening (IS) - Phase IX

    This project is the 9th and the last in a series of similar institutional strengthening projects that have been implemented to enable Iran to comply with the measures set by the Montreal Protocol.


    The MENARID project strengthens institutions by contributing to the removal of constraints to integrated natural resources management (INRM). The Project is implemented through partnership between the Iranian Ministry of Jihad Agriculture (Forest, Range and Watershed Organization), Ministry of Interior’s Provincial Governorates and UNDP.


UNDP works closely with a number of our committed partners within the Government as well as Iran’s civil society to support national efforts in sustainably managing the environment and addressing persistent environmental challenges. The crux of our work also addresses global environmental issues of climate change, biodiversity loss, land degradation, challenges faced in management of international water bodies and ozone layer depletion, while at the same time addressing national priorities in environmental conservation. We also support Iran to fulfill its commitments as a party to various global environmental treaties and conventions.
